Not Trying To Make You Paranoid, But They’re Probably Watching You

In News by Maggie Shankle

If you have a work injury and file a workers’ compensation claim, expect that a private investigator may be watching you at any time.  Insurance adjusters quite possibly fantasize about catching you snow skiing when you have an ankle injury or lifting your child when you have a back injury.  We understand that you still have a life to live even if you are hurt, so things like lifting groceries or a child may be second nature.  Think before you do something by second nature that you will pay for in bed resting later.  Unfortunately, surveillance will never show how you were on the couch for two days after you had to lift those groceries or mow the grass!  The insurance company typically knows where you live and where you go to see your doctor, and they will have an investigator follow you.  These people are not always in little white vans, but could even be sitting at a soccer game for your child or in your doctor’s waiting room.  Keep your private information private as much as possible.

Just for fun, a tribute to the private investigators…
